voting is a civic duty. northeastern is a university that prides itself on supporting students on their road to independence and success and the foundation of that beings with access to democracy and fulfillment of civic duties.

Voting being a civic duty, it should be a national holiday. In lieu of that, organizations should take it upon themselves to increase opportunities to vote

We need to be able to engage with our civic duty without having to worry about midterms, exams, HW assignments, etc. Because our civic duty far trumps (no pun intended haha) any obligation we have to be good students. Northeastern should have the sense to honor that.

I’m a northeastern student and it would be amazing to have this day off to focus on supporting other voters!

Election Day should be a day for everyone to not have to worry when they can get to the polling station. We shouldn’t have to prioritize school over the practice of democracy.

Students need the awareness of this date as well as the time to vote/volunteer at the polls this day

If Northeastern doesn’t cancel classes on election day, they are willingly participating in voter suppression.
